Default Pulled the trigger!

Officially belong here now, bought a 08 Z06. I grew up extremely poor and in middle school, I would play the need for speed 3 demo over and over. The only car you can drive on the demo was a Z06 (C5) and since then Iíve always wanted a Z06. Feels damn good to achieve your dream and overcome obstacles in life. Super blessed, was able to buy it cash.

Congrats man! I totally know the feeling. My dream car (realistic) has been a C6 Z06 ever since they were released in my late teens. I was like a kid at Christmas the night before the drive to pick it up just a little over one year ago. Enjoy!

I didn't grow up poor but very middle class and like you worked my tail off for everything I have.
Post some pics and give us all the details, most of us on here love hearing some background on you and certainly hearing all about the car! Congrats.
